Rereading works by Camara Laye, Cheikh Hamidou Kane, Rachid Boudjedra, Yambo Ouologuem, Ahmadou Kourouma, Mariama B, and Assia Djebar, this study explores the struggle to craft decolonized Islamic identities within sub-Saharan and North African societies. Linking the politics of these narratives to an Islamic piety rooted in ethical revolt against egotism and idolatry, the study considers the agency of non-Western values in postcolonial literature and the relationship between novelistic and prophetic discursive authority.
